I love salsa! I usually judge any Mexican restaurant hubs and I go to by their salsa… and their chicken burrito, my favorite! If a restaurant has tasty salsa, they almost always have great dishes. Take notice next time you go! You will also notice I have another salsa recipe, Sassy Salsa which is less spicy and chunkier. Both are delicious, but this one is not for those who sweat easily.
What You’ll Need:
I usually hand chop and mince everything when I make my chunky Sassy Salsa but for this salsa I prefer to pulse all the ingredients in a food processor so it comes out restaurant style. To start you will want to chop the onion, sweet peppers and jalapeño into inch size chunks.
Add to your food processor and blend until minced. Scrap the inside of the mixing bowl to remove any minced pieces from the sides.
Now, add the salt and pepper and two cans of tomatoes, undrained. Pulse until blended. Once blended, it’s taste test time! If it isn’t spicy enough for you yet, you can add more jalapeño or a little cayenne pepper. After the taste test is complete transfer the salsa from the mixing bowl into a serving bowl or a glass container for refrigeration. I always add my cilantro last and fold in with a spatula. Be sure to pull the leaves off of the stems and mince before adding.
If you plan to serve the salsa right away, garnish with a few extra sprigs of cilantro and jalapeño slices for a spicy presentation!
Not only is this salsa perfect with chips, it is also a yummy addition to tacos, burritos or fajitas!
